Sending my Love Card -Heartland America


Wow, I am so impressed with the entries to the challenges Cheery Lynn Designs has been hosting each week!  I just love visiting each of the blogs and seeing what each person has created, what a wonderful inspiration!    Do not forget this weeks challenge – the theme is “Shaped Card – anything but square”... give it a go, you could just win yourself a $20 voucher to spend on some Cheery Lynn Designs dies...
This week, I have created a card with the most inspiring and beautiful die, Heartland America XL & L. For some time now I have wanted to play with these dies, they really are elegant! However, I did not want to lose the intricate details of each die-cut piece, so I opted to make a card to showcase the dies.

I used the base of the Heartland America XL die (the die comes with two pieces) to cut my pink cardstock base from.  I carefully aligned the die on folded cardstock so that it would not cut through, but leave a fold line.  The 2nd part of the die set is the detailed die, which I cut out of white cardstock, and detached all removable components.  Secondly, I used the HeartlandAmerica L die, and cut two pink cardstock pieces with the base die.  The first piece is used inside the card, the other on the outside.  After inking all edges with Tim Holtz distress ink, Spun Sugar, I placed the layers of the card together which is pretty self explanatory by looking at the photos.


I just adore the little pieces which are a-top the card, that are a part of the middle of the die set. There would be so many ways you could incorporate these into so many creations/projects...

As this card is an unusual shape, and would not sit as a normal card would on display, I added a piece of ribbon on the back to hang the card...

Have a wonderful and inspiring week.....
